Journalist & Advertiser Contente
Contente (@contente.vc) is a creative studio that works to foster a genuine connection and a more aware digital life. We are Daniela Arrais, journalist, and Luiza Voll, advertiser. And in each project we network with suppliers from various areas of creativity. To think about the internet we want is to shed light on all the issues we are feeling in our skin and, collectively, to try to find the answers that make the most sense for our lives. We have a very powerful tool at hand, but we are still crawling, playing like kindergarten children, excited about the toy. What do we want when we spend so much time connected? When do we isolate ourselves in bubbles? What do we want from our relationships? If the internet is this collective space of power, what world are we looking to build together? Contente exists to answer these questions through content, projects, publications, meetings and events.
Contente (@contente.vc) é um estúdio criativo que trabalha para promover uma conexão genuína e uma vida digital mais consciente. Somos Daniela Arrais, jornalista, e Luiza Voll, publicitária. E em cada projeto, trabalhamos em rede com fornecedores de várias áreas da criatividade. Pensar #ainternetqueagentequer é lançar luz sobre todos os problemas que estamos sentindo em nossa pele e, coletivamente, tentar encontrar as respostas que fazem mais sentido para nossas vidas. Temos uma ferramenta muito poderosa em mãos, mas ainda estamos engatinhando, brincando como crianças do jardim de infância, empolgadas com o brinquedo. O que queremos quando passamos tanto tempo conectados? Quando nos isolamos em bolhas? O que queremos de nossos relacionamentos? Se a internet é esse espaço coletivo de poder, que mundo estamos procurando construir juntos? A Contente existe para responder essas questões por meio de conteúdo, projetos, publicações, encontros e eventos.

CTJ Makerspace Supervisor Casa Thomas Jefferson
Soraya Lacerda has a degree in Information Science and consider herself an educator at heart. She has been working at Casa Thomas Jefferson since 2015, when she was invited to design, implement and supervise the first Makerspace within an educational institution in Brasilia. In addition to coordinating and managing the space, she is one of CTJ’s representatives in the Achieving 21st Century Skills educational project, since 2015, conducted by several Brazilian Binational Centers, in partnership with the U.S. Department of State and the Smithsonian Institute. For the project, Soraya coordinates in close partnership with the U.S. Embassy in Brazil the interdisciplinary team of CTJ Makerspace to design innovative projects, programs and narratives for the community in general, for public and private schools, sharing them with the Brazilian network of Binational Centers / American Spaces. The project also fosters the immersion and motivation of managers and educators in active learning experiences, co-constructed by the interaction and collaboration of all agents involved. She believes in an active and innovative educational system and also that the narratives implemented with their young students – of public or private schools – develop their character, along with essential skills to be an active professional in the 21st century scenario: collaboration, creativity, problem solving. Her work in the project gave her experience with active methodologies (maker-centered learning, challenge-based learning and project-based learning) and design thinking.
